Still Paying Attention To Clothes Sizes? That's A Silly Old (Sea Dog) Mistake - Plus Size Clothing Options

I have blogged about my lust of Silly Old Sea Dog dresses before - because when they announced their plus size clothing options last year I got very excited! 

At the time they did up to a size 28 and I believe at the moment they do up to a size 24 (with some choices up to a sze 28), with options to have dresses made in your size! I know, I would love to have more size options but I do recognise that often with independent brands it takes time to build up to that! You can even choose your skirt length to ensure that you get a dress perfect for you.

A few weeks ago the lovely team at Silly Old Sea Dog offered to send me one of their dresses in a size 28. I hadn't tried one of their dresses before, mainly because it's a lot of money to spend on a dress that isn't my size and I am not sure would fit.

They sent me this lovely Winter Wonderland dress and I love it. One of the things I like best about the dress is the unusual pattern. I love that plus size fashion options are expanding (no pun intended) but having something which not many others are going to own is great - especially when you attend a lot of plus size events and have a fear of someone else turning up in what you're wearing!

The dress is a little more expensive than I would usually spend, but that said you can feel the difference in quality. The material is sturdy but with a bit of stretch, so it holds you in and gives you plenty of support. I love how much material the skirt has, which gives it that real swishy effect.

It just goes to show, once again that you CAN ignore clothing labels and try items on - you might just be surprised at how well they fit!

Silly Old Sea Dog have an amazing range of dresses with some really fun, retro style prints. I love their range of patterns and dress shapes, it feels like there would be something for everyone.
